APEC Photo Contest is Back, Open for Submission

  • Issued by the APEC Secretariat

The APEC Photo Contest is back and now accepting entries from photography enthusiasts in the region.

The contest requests participants to submit a maximum of three photos that interpret either the theme of APEC 2021 New Zealand, “Join, Work, Grow. Together.” or one of the priorities:

  • Road to strengthening economic recovery
  • Inclusive and sustainable recovery
  • Innovation and a digitally enabled recovery

Watch a video about New Zealand’s APEC theme and its priorities.

Participants may use a professional camera, digital camera or mobile phone camera. Photos may only contain minor digital manipulations. Participants must also be citizens or residents of one of the APEC member economies to qualify.

“The pandemic has resulted in some of the toughest challenges faced by a generation,” said APEC Secretariat Executive Director, Dr Rebecca Sta Maria. “As we slowly claw our way back to recovery, we look to the people of the APEC region to help us tell your stories through pictures.”

“More than just a competition, the APEC Photo Contest provides a chance for policymakers to engage with the wider APEC community,” Dr Sta Maria explained. “This year’s submissions will help us to understand how the public perceives APEC’s theme and priorities, thus providing valuable feedback for all of us.”

Photos may be submitted through an online form and/or by tagging APEC on Instagram using the hashtag #APECPhotoContest2021, before the deadline on 27 September 2021 at 23:59 (Singapore, GMT+8).
